The Pittsburgh Steelers are going through a rough patch right now.
Losers of three in a row, the offense is in shambles and hasn’t been a threat at all.
With that in mind, Mike Tomlin has decided to turn back to Mason Rudolph while Kenny Pickett continues to work his way back from his ankle injury.
Notably, the team’s struggles and Ben Roethlisberger’s recent comments about the coaching have prompted a debate about whether the Steelers should move on from Tomlin or not.
That’s why NFL Network’s James Palmer, Jeffri Chadiha, and Steve Wyche stated that there should be absolutely no doubt that the Steelers won’t part ways with Tomlin in the offseason (via James Palmer on Twitter)
Great disscussion on Mike Tomlin and the state of the #steelers right now on THE NFL REPORT. Is it time for a change? @wyche89 and I always love having @jeffrichadiha on every Monday. @nflnetwork @nflgameday pic.twitter.com/2BP9xrEbsP

Instead, they will look to fix what’s broken by looking for strong-minded and hard-nosed skill players who actually want to be there, also predicting that Tomlin could make several changes personnel-wise.
Chadiha stated that should Tomlin be fired, he’d be one of the quickest hires in NFL history, similar to what happened when the Philadelphia Eagles fired Andy Reid.
He called Tomlin a future Hall of Famer and stated that he’s the right guy to fix whatever doesn’t work in Pittsburgh, which means there should be little-to-no chances of watching the organization deciding to go in a different direction for the time being.
Truth be told, that’s right on point, as Tomlin shouldn’t be blamed for some of the players’ lack of effort, and he’s definitely earned the benefit of the doubt and the right to fix this team after all he’s done for the organization.
